Kimberly Carlson helped me purchase my first home. She took the time to assist me through each step, from mortgage approval to closing. She is resourceful, quick to respond, knowledgeable, professional and understands the market. Her team (especially her assistant Jerry) was very supportive and also always available to answer any of my many questions. I would highly recommend Kimberly and Durante and Rich Real Estate.

I am going to keep this short – but only so you will read the whole review. Rich Durante runs one of the finest real estate and property management companies around. When we needed to find a home to rent (which was tough because we had 4 dogs at the time), Rich really went to bat for us! While in this rental home (18 months), Rich’s team took very good care of us – and we needed their help on several occasions with repairs that were vital!! Then, when it was time to move on, Rich helped us to realize that we could actually purchase a home through a special mortgage plan in IL – he proactively (it was his idea!) helped us connect with the right mortgage people, attorney, and home home inspection people, while he tirelessly helped us find a home that would meet the financial parameters of this mortgage program AS WELL AS our specific dreams and desires! I can’t say enough positive about the commitment we felt Rich’s team had to making sure our renting and buying experiences were the best! Awesome people – professionally and personally!”

“Matt holds a special place in our lives as he was instrumental in helping us buy our first home! He has been a pleasure to work with. We had a long and tedious search process and viewed over 30 houses before settling for the one! Matt’s strengths include his patience and willingness to work around your schedule. He is also flexible in understanding your requirements from the home and adapting the houses he shows to your tastes. Matt was not only patient in showing us the homes but would also provide valuable advice in terms of what to look for in a home. He was also a helpful resource guiding us on the quality of fittings and details in the houses we viewed. He ensured that we were connected to excellent contractors (lawyers, finance company, handymen) that made our purchase smooth. Thus, he helped us not only with the choice of the house but with the actual move and settling into a new home! This process can be extremely stressful if you have to go through the research on all the vendors yourselves. Matt enabled us to execute these details of the home buying process seamlessly.

We are thankful to Matt for being a great agent and a friend through and even after the process. We would definitely recommend Matt Bonnes to anyone looking to purchase a home :)”

“My husband and I have worked with Matt on a few separate occasions and have been very pleased with his effort. We have continued to pass his name along and have had excellent reviews from those utilizing his services. Matt takes a lot of time to recognize customer wants and needs and he is passionate and knowledgeable about his work. He is also the kind of guy you could sit down and have a cup of coffee with–very, very personable! I highly recommend Matt Bonnes at D&R Property Management & Realty; you will not be disappointed!”

“Excellent experience leasing from Matt, Rich and the D&R team! The unit I rented was in a nice area of Grayslake. As with most properties over 10 yrs old, things happen – which is the benefit of renting! Over two years I probably had half a dozen issues that needed attention and the D&R team never let me down. Their ‘handyman’ Tim is great too! Thanks to Matt and the team!”

“After a very good experience by working with Matt with our transition from upstate NY into a very nice rental in Vernon Hills we decided to go forward and work with Matt as our Realtor for our home purchase. We told Matt that we are very interested in the area of Wauconda IL. Only 3 days after telling him what we are looking for he had 4 showings ready to go for us. Matt understood exactly what we wanted and we instantly fell in love with the second house he showed us. He stopped by us the same day to get all the paperwork done in order for us to put an offer in. From the day we put the offer in to the day we closed Matt was always available for us. No matter if it was late at night or the weekend. He went above and beyond helping us getting everything working out in our best interest. He also connected us with a very good home inspector and attorney. He was patiently answering all our questions throughout the process and always had a solution right on hand when there was a bump in the road. Matt was with us all the way out of the Army into the civilian world and finally into our own home. Matt’s quality of work was beyond our expectations. Thank you for everything you have done for us Matt you are awesime and keep up the great work.”

“We couldn’t imagine renting our home without the help of Matt! He has made the entire process much more manageable, from thoroughly explaining what to expect to helping us every step of the way. Matt is very responsive and always easy to get a hold of.”

“Kimberly has been great to work with. She helped me find people to assist with cleaning and handyman services to make renting my townhouse quick and efficient. Thanks to her knowledge of the market and professional marketing my place rented before listing on MLS. I would recommend her to anyone looking to rent their place out.”

“Kimberly and D&R property helped me with renting my townhome. Kimberly was very professional and was always communicating to me on the progress of finding tenants. Within 30 days we had renters for our townhome and before I knew it we were talking about move in dates for our renters. I feel the best part of dealing with Kimberly and D&R property was that communication was always top priority. So for myself I would refer Kimberly and I am very happy with the service and response time when I had any questions.”

    ~ Andrew M.

“Kimberly was a huge asset to our rental process. She made the process simple & stress-free to get our townhose rented. Great communication allowed us to know exactly how things were going throughout the process, and we had multiple offers in no time. I’d recommend her to anybody looking to rent their property.”

    ~ Dustin L.

“Kimberly is a high energy professional who delivers on her commitments. She found exceptional tenants for my property, kept me informed and engaged in the process, and demonstrated excellent follow-thru. I couldn’t ask for more.”

    ~ Franco T.

“Kimberly was an incredible help to my wife and I during a recent trip for a relocation to the Chicago area. She responded promptly to our initial request on a listing, and helped guide us through several other properties until we found the right one! She asked us questions up front which helped to narrow down the area and properties we would be interested in and listened to us throughout the process. We were extremely pleased and look forward to working with Kimberly in the future!”

I just want to compliment you again on how you do your business and the people you have working for you. Matt started the good impression, Jenna reinforced my positive feeling, and this quick response from Jerry sealed the deal. It is hard to find competent people. I know, I work with clients as a vendor.

Thanks again!
